Nearly identical in size and shape as our best selling regular Steel Carabiner. All the components in this SMC Light Steel Locking Carabiner are meticulously hand-finished after machining, resulting in the smooth, free gate action that is the hallmark of all SMC carabiners. In addition, each carabiner is 100% hand-inspected for gate action and other functional characteristics before leaving the SMC factory.
